NFC technology is starting to be widely deployed – except for the iPhone and for webOS, it is available on all other handset platforms. Sadly, so far, it was difficult to find something to test your NFC handset on – it is much like the problem of storing an impressive Galaxy Note II in a Galaxy Note II case where no one can see it.

In the inner city of Milan, a trial has now been set up by a local carrier. It allows users to use their handsets to perform the following actions:

  • Use vouchers
  • Pay for food
  • Find out about sightseeing spots
